KUTZTOWN, Pa. – Redshirt-senior Anthony Lee of the Kutztown University men’s basketball team became just the third KU player in program history to reach 2,000 points, and his momentum continued Tuesday as the Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference (PSAC) league office voted him as the East Division Athlete of the Week.
Lee had a week to remember last week.
In Kutztown’s two games last week, Lee averaged 42.5 points per game, 8.5 rebounds, four assists and two steals. In a win at Mansfield (Jan. 16) he tallied 37 points, while making his first six three-pointers, and added eight rebounds, five assists, two blocks and three steals. Against Millersville (Jan. 21), Lee netted 48 points, the third-most in a single game in program history, and eclipsed 2,000 career points, ranking second all-time in KU lore with 2,021 career points. He shot 69.5-percent (16-of-23) from the floor, 71-percent (5-for-7) from long distance and 92-percent (11-of-12) from the free-throw line. He added nine rebounds, three assists, one block and one steal in 40 minutes of action.
It is the seventh Athlete of the Week honor for Lee, who was a 2017-18 All-PSAC East First Teamer and an All-Atlantic Region Second Teamer.
In KU lore, Lee holds school-records for points in a game (50), three-pointers made in a game (8), season (83) and career (230), and three-point percentage in a season (.516) and career (.495). He ranks second all-time in program history in career points (2,021), fourth in steals (183), eighth in rebounds (566) and blocks (89), third in free-throws made (399) and 10th in assists (262).
Lee was the NCAA Division II leader in three-point percentage last season and is currently second in Division II in scoring at 29.0 points per game.
The Golden Bears (11-8 overall, 5-6 PSAC) host East Stroudsburg University on Saturday, Jan. 26, beginning at 3 p.m.
